Good chance to shuffle the lineup, listening to Matthews constantly interrupting his guests was grating.
Yeah, I've liked Matthews but lately he's been pretty tone deaf. I know he's a political junkie but he's 74, married and has plenty of money. Retiring isn't a bad idea. Time to chill and enjoy life. Travel. Write more books. And I will be a bit surprised if he doesn't show up as a "special correspondent" during the conventions and election.
